The Anaheim Ducks scored three goals in 37 seconds, becoming the second-fastest team to score three in the playoffs.

The 1979 Toronto Maple Leafs still hold the record as they scored three times in 23 seconds against the Atlanta Flames, in which Chicago coach Joel Quenneville picked up an assist on the third Leaf goal. Matt Beleskey scored the middle goal for the Ducks and now has six in the playoffs after scoring all five in the second round against the Calgary Flames.

Antoine Vermette scored the game-winning goal in the Blackhawks’ 5-4 double-overtime triumph against the Ducks on Saturday night.

A healthy scratch in Game 3, Vermette is the reason the Western Conference final is shifting to Anaheim tied up at two. His gaffe, along with Kimmo Timonen’s, also led to a Ducks goal in the third period, but he atoned for that mistake big time. Brandon Saad (goal, two assists), Jonathan Toews (goal, assist), Brent Seabrook and Patrick Kane notched the other goals for Chicago. At one point in the third period, Chicago had a 3-1 lead … however, that ended up being short-lived and it went down 4-3 after giving up three goals in 37 seconds, before tying the game on Kane's power-play goal.

Ken Hitchcock is likely to remain the coach of the Blues next season, according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

"The word we’re getting out of St. Louis is that barring anything dramatic happening, Ken Hitchcock will be back as coach of the Blues next year," Friedman said on Hockey Night in Canada. Hitchcock has coached the Blues for four seasons, helping lead them to the playoffs in each one. The catch is that the Blues have been knocked out in the first round the past two seasons.

Former Oilers interim coach Todd Nelson has been granted permission to seek coaching jobs elsewhere, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

Of course, Nelson was the interim before the Oilers hired Todd McLellan. Now, he will see what else is out there, as his goal is to become a full-time coach. Edmonton went 17-25-9 under Nelson. Friedman says the Oilers would like Nelson to return as an assistant or in some other capacity within the organization, and they’ll check in with him in a couple weeks.

Devan Dubnyk and the Wild will discuss a contract extension this week, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

The Wild acquired Dubnyk in January, and all he did was post some of the best numbers in the NHL: 27-9-2 record, a 1.78 goals-against average and .936 save percentage. "The Minnesota Wild and Dubnyk will sit down with his agent this week to talk to see if they can work out a contract with the goalie who had a great second half of the year," Friedman said during Hockey Night in Canada. Dubnyk made $800,000 this past season.

Much like New York Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault on the subject of possibly sitting Henrik Lundqvist earlier in the series, Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper shot down the notion of benching Ben Bishop.

In fact, Cooper called the idea "asinine." On one hand, that makes sense, as Bishop is a big-money goalie who's had some great moments in the playoffs. That said, he's looked vulnerable lately, and the Bolts have a nice backup option in Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Keith Yandle scored once and added a couple of assists for the Rangers in their 5-1 win Friday over Tampa Bay.

The defenseman was acquired from Arizona close to the trade deadline for his offensive talent and he did not disappoint in Game 4. It was his first goal in the playoffs this season and the blueliner now has nine points in 16 games including five in his last two games.

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 38 of 39 shots during Friday's 5-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 4 in the Eastern Conference Final.

Lundqvist had given up 12 goals in Games 2 and 3 combined but he (and his teammates) were much better tonight. The Rangers goaltender made several key saves throughout the game, but the entire team was much better in front of him. The 33-year-old faced 19 shots and several quality scoring chances in the second period, but he was more than up to the task. Lundqvist is now 10-6 in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs. He has a 2.05 goals-against-average and a .930 save percentage this postseason. Lundqvist was named the game's first star.

Rick Nash scored two goals and an assist in New York's 5-1 win in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final over Tampa Bay.

Nash came into tonight's game with just seven points in two and a half rounds of playoff action, but he really came through tonight. Nash scored the game's opening goal at the 17:18 mark of the first period. He also picked up an assist on Keith Yandle's second period goal, while adding his second of the game midway through the final frame. The three points are a new career-high in the playoffs for Nash. He finished the game with a plus-1 rating, five shots on goal, three hits, one blocked shot and one takeaway. The Eastern Conference final is now tied at 2-2, with New York hosting Game 5 and a potential Game 7.

Updating a previous item, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman believes that the 2015-16 salary cap number will be closer to $71.5 million.

There was an earlier report saying that Bettman projected the cap to be in the mid-70 million range, but the tweet has since been clarified. This is what most people were expecting, as Bettman previously mentioned that $71.5 million was the likely number.

Henrik Lundqvist is disappointed with the way he's played in the last two games.

He has surrendered 12 goals to the Tampa Bay Lightning on 66 shots in back-to-back losses. "It's really challenging for me the way they move the puck," Lundqvist said after Wednesday night's 6-5 overtime defeat in Game 3. "The way they find open ice in the slot, and scoring chances right in front. I just need to dig deep here to try to be more consistent with my game plan. Try to challenge the shooter then they pass and sometimes you stay back. As a team, if we can be a little bit better, but also I have to be better. Honestly, you're not going to win if I give up six goals." The Rangers will look to get their defense back on track and even the best-of-seven series in Game 4 on Friday.
